Nottingham Forest target Trevoh Chalobah is said to want a move to German giants Bayern Munich if he is to leave Chelsea this window.

The Reds are said to have submitted a £25 million bid for the central defender, with Forest looking to add another defender before the closure of the window at 11 pm tonight.

However, despite the bid Fabrizio Romano has confirmed that the 24-year-old would only like to join the Bundesliga side if he left Stamford Bridge.

Chalobah has five years left on his current deal, with Mauricio Pochettino’s side in no rush to sell the Cobham academy graduate.

Chalobah deal looks to be difficult at this stage

Regular first-team minutes have been hard to come by for the 24-year-old. He’s been down the pecking order in recent seasons and Pochettino arriving at the club hasn’t helped his cause for consistent game time.

A move could happen for Chalobah before the closure of the window tonight, however, a move to the City Ground looks unlikely.

Steve Cooper’s side have submitted a £25 million bid for the defender, but it could be short of Chelsea’s valuation and they might need to return with a higher offer for the Blues to consider.

Even though Chalobah seems to be uncertain about a move, he would fit Cooper’s profile of a centre-back with pace and good ball-playing abilities.

He would be an excellent addition for the Reds, but for now, any move for Chalobah looks unrealistic.
